Jesus عيسى 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him)
Jesus_Name_in_Arabic

No Muslim is a Muslim if he or she does not believe in Jesus Christ.
The Muslim, in compliance with the Quran believes that Jesus was a great messenger of God, that brought the dead to life by God’s will, that he healed those born blind and the lepers by God’s will, that he was born without any male intervention and that he was the Christ.

لا اله الا الله

Biblical evidence of Jesus 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) being a Servant of God and having no share in divinity.
“Children of God”
Jesus never called himself Son of God, but he used to call himself the “Son of Man.” [Mark 2:10]
Although he heard himself being called that name he did not object and did not condor the title exclusively for him.
According to the Biblical term in the Old and New Testaments, every God-fearing righteous person is called “Son of God”.
[In Matthew 5:9 we read]
“Blessed are the peace-makers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
[In Matthew 5:45]
“That ye may be children of your Father which is in heaven…”
[Matthew 23:8]
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father which is in heaven.”
From this you will note that fatherhood and sonship is meant to be the relationship between the Lord and His servants: It is meant in general sense and not specifically for Jesus.

Jesus 'alayhi'l-salām (peace be upon him) : Preacher of Monotheism
[In John 17:3]
“And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom Thou has sent.”
[In Mark 12:28:30]
“And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, ‘Which is the first commandment of all?’ And Jesus answered him: ‘The first of all the commandments is; hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is One Lord: and thou shalt love the Lord, they God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.'”
[In Mark 12:32]
“And the scribe said unto him, ‘Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God, and there is none other but He.”
[In Mark 12:34]
“…he (Jesus) said unto him, ‘Thou are not far from the kingdom of God…”
In these verses, Jesus himself had testified that Allah is the One God, there is none other than Him, and whoever believes in his Oneness, he is near the Kingdom of God. Therefore whoever associates partners with God or believes in the trinity is far away from the Kingdom of God.
[In Matthew 24:36]
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of the heaven, but my father only.”
A similar text is proclaimed in the Quran stating that none knows when the hour will come except God. This establishes the fact that Jesus was subservient to God and that he had no share in Divnity: that he was an inaction of God, was an innovation by people.
Prophet Jesus never claimed divinity.
He taught the Oneness of God and confirmed that he was just a messenger.
[In John 20:17]
Jesus said, “…I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”
[In John 5:30]
“By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear and my judgement is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”

After the ascension of Prophet Jesus most of the Christians remind Unitarian. They used to believe in the oneness of God and the teachers of Prophet Jesus and all of the other Prophets. They did not believe in the doctrines of Trinity, Original Sin, Blood Atonement or Divine Sonship of Jesus. After centuries of Persecution against the unitarian Christians, the Pauline church prevailed and the teachers of Paul replaced the teaching of Jesus.

I hope that you found this brief post informative and a helpful introduction in understanding the difference in views of Prophet Jesus in Islam and Christianity.
